9780007265282: Across the Mersey

From the author of The Grafton Girls comes the story of one Liverpool family preparing for the onslaught of World War Two, while trying not to fight among themselves. Jean and Vi are twins but couldn't be more different. Jean's proud of her honest, hardworking husband and their children, but there's never a penny to spare. Vi's equally proud of her husband's new role as a local councilman and their elegant new house, and has raised her children to expect the best. As war breaks out, agonizing decisions must be faced. Should the oldest children enlist? Should the youngest be evacuated? All the traditional certainties are overturned. Then the twins' own younger sister, singer Francine, returns home unexpectedly and stirs up the past, even in the midst of present danger. This is a tremendous saga of fighting spirit and family closeness, and the belief that even though today is full of destruction and pain, there is hope for a better tomorrow.

About the Author:

Annie Groves is the author of Connie’s Courage, Ellie Pride, and Hettie of Hope Street, a series of novels for which she drew upon her own family's history, and Goodnight Sweetheart and Some Sunny Day.

Liverpool Daily Post`Heartwrenching and uplifting in equal measure - a tragic indictment of what can happen when you swap passion for duty. Roll on the sequel!'
